Distracted Drivers a Real Threat | New Hampshire Accident Attorney
A recent accident involving a cyclist in Vermont has been blamed on a distracted driver. At the time of the accident the driver was using her GPS to look for a place to eat. Though GPS, hands-free cell phones and other new gadgets promise to help lower driver distraction they can sometimes cause it.
Studies show that even using a hands-free cell phone can lead to driver distraction. As your mind focuses on the call your ability to pay full attention to the road is diminished. During the accident discussed above, the driver was looking down at her electronic map instead of focusing on the road ahead of her.
Distracted drivers are everywhere and I am sure that at some point you have looked away from the road to attend to other matters. In that moment we do not realize the seriousness of the indiscretion. In the blink of an eye a distracted driver can lose control of their vehicle, injuring and even killing a fellow motorist, pedestrian or cyclist.
